KVM: VMX: Fix host userspace gsbase corruption
We now use load_gs_index() to load gs safely; unfortunately this also changes MSR_KERNEL_GS_BASE, which we managed separately. This resulted in confusion and breakage running 32-bit host userspace on a 64-bit kernel. Fix by - saving guest MSR_KERNEL_GS_BASE before we we reload the host's gs - doing the host save/load unconditionally, instead of only when in guest long mode Things can be cleaned up further, but this is the minmal fix for now.
